New Zealands Subantarctic Islands cruise, including Macquarie
From
US $7,000
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The wildlife. Tips? Don't go on this ship: it is old and uncomfortable. Booking a mini-suite was expensive and turned out to be most inconvenient. It was certainly good having ones own toilet and shower, however the bed arrangement was terrible. The bed was enclosed in a box with only a small corner free for getting in or getting out of bed. If one had to get up in the night one had to wake one's partner to get out of bed and back in again, as one had to climb... (more)Carole-Anne Fooks

From
£2,025
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The Blue Lagoon Cruise, no question. We did the 3 day cruise 15 years ago, always said we would do it again, this time the 7 day cruise. We worried a bit, wondering if it would be as good, but it was fabulous! We would highly recommend it, if you like small ships. We also had 6 days on the 'mainland' 2 days on Bounty Island, it was okay if you were 20 (our guide said she thought we were 30)nothing on the island but the resort, and extremely loud music! We had a 2 day... (more)Ms Adrian Redford

From
AU $2,395

Memorable parts? The first two days of the Great Ocean Walk; also the Atherton tablelands stay. Tips? Do some research into precisely what's offered on each trip - the Red Centre tour wasn't exactly what was predicted. Local benefits? Yes, except for Red Centre tour, which relied a lot on Aboriginal culture and settings, but seemed to involve no indigenous people. Overall rating? Very good. (more)Anne Owers
